NAHL Revises Divisional Alignment

I've received reports that the NAHL has revised their divisional alignment for the coming season. Junked is the four-division alignment which left some divisions a little sparse. The NAHL is going back to three divisions, which should also serve to hush those who complained about the format of this year's Robertson Cup Tournament. The revised playoff format will feature the top four teams in each division, with the host team (still to be determined) filling the fourth slot. First round and division finals will be best-of-five series. The regular season is still scheduled to run 62 games, so take out the four Blaine Showcase games and each team will have 29 regular season home dates. I'm still expecting some interdivisional play with this setup, most likely from Marquette, Springfield, and St. Louis...

North Division
Alpena, Mahoning Valley, Marquette, USNTDP, Traverse City

Central Division
Southern Minnesota, North Iowa, Fargo, Bismarck, Alexandria, Springfield

South Division
Alaska, Fairbanks, Texas, St. Louis, Wichita Falls, Santa Fe

So, I guess if the other divisions bitch enough about the Alaska teams, they can always fall back on the "it's cheaper to fly to DFW, so the South makes more sense" mentality?
